Keystone Hardisty Terminal
TransCanada announced May 9, 2012, that it has concluded a successful open season for the Keystone Hardisty Terminal project. Sufficient firm commitments were secured from parties interested in accessing the new terminal at the starting point of TransCanada’s Keystone Pipeline System.
“The open season held earlier this year for the Keystone Hardisty Terminal was very successful and confirms strong demand from Western Canadian producers for new infrastructure to allow them to move crude oil into the Keystone System,” said Russ Girling, TransCanada’s president and chief executive officer. There is overwhelming industry support to transport crude oil safely and reliably to markets across North America.”
Binding, long-term commitments in excess of 500,000 barrels per day were received during the open season, leading to the opportunity to expand the proposed two million barrels of crude oil batch accumulation tankage and pipeline infrastructure to a 2.6-million-barrel terminal. TransCanada intends to proceed with the necessary regulatory applications for approvals to construct and operate this terminal at Hardisty, Alta.
Subject to regulatory approvals, the project is expected to be in service in 2016 and cost approximately $275 million.
